Assets of KIZ
Although the members of KIZ have to share the income, each individual has a substantial fortune. This comes on the one hand from the income from their albums and singles, but above all from live performances.
1 Income from KIZ Music
In total, KIZ released 5 albums and 2 mixtapes. 2 of the albums received a gold award and were thus sold over 100,000 times. While the album “Hahnenkampf” took a few years to reach the gold record, the newer work “Hurray, the world goes under” reached gold status very quickly. The single of the same name also went gold, but 200,000 units have to be sold here. Since KIZ is with a major label, they earn around one euro per CD.
